War Thunder is about to get its latest content update, dubbed Shark Attack, with new ground vehicles and more.

Players will be able to try the Ka-50 “Black Shark” and the Mi-28 “Night Hunter” helicopters, the legendary British light cruiser HMS Belfast and the first fighter planes for a new nation tech tree that represents Sweden, according to the latest press release.

Modern ground vehicles are also joining the action like the ZTZ96 with its powerful 125mm smoothbore cannon supported by an autoloading mechanism and new composite armor protection, and US armed forces fans can now use M1A2 variant of the Abrams tank with depleted uranium armor components.

Additionally, larger sized ships are also set to arrive,

“The star of the show is the American heavy cruiser Pensacola, the first rank V ship in the game. Military history fans should also try the British light cruiser HMS Belfast. During World War II it was used to escort the Arctic convoys to the USSR and to provide cover for the troops in the famous D-Day landings that took place in Normandy. Since 1978, the light cruiser Belfast has served as a self contained exhibit for the Imperial War Museum and is permanently moored on the river Thames in London.”
